Amumu: The Tank Mage

Basics

There are a lot of good Amumu's out there right now and the most popular builds you see are jungling Amumu and of course straight tank/gank/initiator. I love these builds, but I wanted to try something different. So, here is my take on a AP damage heavy/tank heavy Amumu.

Begining

With runes and masteries set up as shown, buying a sapphire crystal to begin with seems a little odd, but it's the best step to a quick Glacial Shroud. Farming consistently while conserving mana as best as possible is key here. Dont over extend and stay pushed to the tower if you have to, provided you are solo or even duo laning with someone who isn't quiet up to speed. Get boots, then the shroud. You have a choice now, go ganking at 6-ish or stay laning and heavy farm. Either or works with the right team.
Mid-game
Keep farming! You're items aren't cheap! You should also by now be ganking and if not getting kills, getting assist gold. Go help at dragon, gank mid, whatever you need to do to get that extra bit of gold faster. Consider getting blue or even red buff at this point if another member of your team doesn't need it more. Keep going with the item build.
Late
You should be by now a tanky, magical IBM that runs in with team mates, hits hard as hell and stuns/stops champs in their track. If you aren't killing them, your assists are through the roof. Who doesn't like a stun/ult initiator combo that takes half of their life away while you take little damage? Keep this up and a strong tank carry is assured.

Note

I left the last item spot open to situation item. Need more MR? A Banshee's? Need a little bit more AP or something? Fill in with what you think fits best for your game. Not every game is gonna go the same. I usually buy something like a Sunfire Cape, or a Force of Nature.
